Malaysia Raises the Bar as a Top Healthcation Destination

Healthcare travellers can now keep up with their health screening routines while enjoying a hassle-free vacation in a safe and trusted destination.

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Media OutReach - 31 July 2023 – Malaysia is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South East Asia, drawing visitors from all over the world due to its fascinating local culture, stunning historical and natural sites, and captivating way of life. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the country witnessed a steady rise in tourist arrivals, and the numbers are back on an upward trend today.


Recently, the country introduced a first-of-its-kind Premium Wellness Programme to welcome healthcare travellers, who can now get their health screening done easily as well as enjoying the many attractions that it has to offer. A collaborative effort with top-tier hospitals, hotels and travel and tour agents, this initiative by Malaysia Healthcare aligns with a global shift towards prioritising preventive health and wellness, paving the way for healthcare travellers to seamlessly experience Malaysia Healthcare with a healthcation!

Malaysia eagerly encourages the global population to prioritise preventive care by taking charge of their health and wellbeing. This crystallises Malaysia Healthcare’s focus on welcoming healthcare travellers who are actively seeking preventive care and wellness treatments in Malaysia's private healthcare facilities.

An oft cited reason for people not getting routine check-ups is a lack of time. Malaysia Healthcare alleviates these concerns by providing a seamless combination of healthcare and hospitality to ensure that they experience a good healthcation. With a plethora of health screening options that can be tailored to patients' age, gender and current health conditions readily available, healthcare travellers are spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting the healthcare establishment that best meets their preferences, needs and comfort. They will be able to plan their travel schedule properly and get their health screening done quickly and efficiently since there will be little to no waiting time. This frees them up to enjoy specially curated leisure tours, or indulge in healthy meals and relaxing wellness activities thereafter.

​​Malaysia’s private healthcare facilities are closely monitored and regulated by the Ministry of Health Malaysia, as well as accredited by internationally recognised bodies, such as Malaysia Society for Quality in Health (MSQH), Joint Commission International (JCI) and other agencies under the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua). As such, healthcare travellers who choose Malaysia can have peace of mind knowing that they are receiving quality care at all times in a safe and trusted destination.
